USGS Water-Year Summary 2019
07185000 NEOSHO RIVER NEAR COMMERCE, OK
LOCATION - Lat 36°55'43", long 94°57'26" referenced to North American Datum of 1927, in SW 1/4 SE 1/4 sec.05, T.28 N., R.22 E., Ottawa County, OK, Hydrologic Unit 11070206, on downstream side of right pier of county road bridge, 1.3 mi upstream from Mud Creek, 2.2 mi downstream from Four Mile Creek, 4.5 mi west of Commerce, and at mile 153.4.
DRAINAGE AREA - 5,926 mi². From automated delineation using 10-meter National Elevation Dataset digital elevation model data dated 10/01/2006 and Watershed Boundary Dataset dated 10/01/2006, using Albers Equal-Area Projection, North American Datum 1983.
- WDR 2012: Drainage area.
PERIOD OF RECORD - June 1939 to current year.
GAGE - Water-stage recorder. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' satellite telemeter at station. Datum of gage is 748.97 ft above NGVD of 1929 (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' datum). Since February 1989, supplementary water-stage recorder 1000 ft to the left at same datum used as needed when flow exceeds 21 ft GH (supplementary gage discontinued 2016 WY). Flow regulated to some extent since 1963 by John Redmond Reservoir in Kansas, 190 mi upstream.
EXTREMES FOR PERIOD OF RECORD - The lowest daily mean is zero flow at times. The maximum peak stage for period of record is 34.03 from floodmark. The maximum peak flow for period of record is 267,000 cfs. These numbers were computed by using a flood-routing method from a hydrograph defined at Miami, mile 144.2, by several discharge measurements, gage height record, and by comparison with computed inflow into Lake O' the Cherokees.
PERIOD OF RECORD - Water years 1948 to 1954, 1960 to 1973; June 1988 to June 1989; February 2004 to April 2006. April 2018 to current water year.
